Butterfly McQueen & Oliver from "Brady Bunch"
17 September 2000 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

Butterfly McQueen is superb as "Aunt Thelma", a fairy-godmother who pops into Calvin Brundage's home via the TV set. He's the lucky winner of the "7 wishes sweepstakes" and Aunt Thelma is here to grant them, but not before Calvin learns a few lessons along the way.

This was one of those "Weekend Special" movies that seemed to pop up 3 or 4 times a year in the early 80's. There was actually another movie in this series, "Seven Wishes of Joanna Peabody", which was far superior. But still, this is cute, fun, lightweight entertainment for kids.
